The partnership reports its “ordinary” income and deductions on Form 1065. a. See page C-14 for Form 1065. 2. The term “ordinary” does not have the same meaning as when it was used in determining the gain or loss from the sale of property (i.e., capital gain, trade or business gain, and ordinary income). a. Ordinary in this context means there is no special tax treatment of the income and deduction items if received by a corporate taxpayer or an individual taxpayer. . b. Any item that could affect the partner’s tax liability if the item is separately reported, must be separately reported. c. Examples of items that require separate reporting include the following: 1. Tax exempt income. 2. Investment income. 3. Capital gains and losses (short-term and long-term). 4. Trade or business gain and losses. 5. Dividend income. 6. Rental income. 7. Nondeductible expenses. 8. Charitable contributions. d. Also see page 4 for a list of similar items. e. Example 2, page 5. 3. By law a partner cannot be an employee.
